Commodore 64 Game cartridges
Cartridges are ROM media with a plastic casing and pins recessed into the front edge of the case. Examples of cartridges are Sega Genesis carts, Game Boy Advance GamePaks, and Commodore 64 game cartridges.

Cartridges differ from game cards in that they are thicker, can contain a button cell battery, and have pins recessed into the front edge of the case rather than the top or bottom surface of a card.
